Good grief!  “A Charlie Brown’s Christmas” turns 50 this year!  Lucky it’s a timeless and beloved perennial.

Time to gather everyone around your own Snoopy doghouse for a rousing round of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” or even a Vince Guaraldi karaoke party. To celebrate, it airs tomorrow night… Monday, Nov. 30th… and again on Christmas Eve.

Naughty and Nice – a Broadsway Christmas

Stuff the turkey, lace the egg nog, dig in the sauce –cranberry, that is, (save the rum and coke for later) -- and crank up the Grammy-phone because once again, it’s beginning to look a lot like Broadsway!

Heather Bambrick, Julie Michel and Dianne Leah follow their popular debut CD “Old Friends” with “The Most Wonderful Time… Maybe. “

Ba-da-da-dum (snap, snap), Ba-da-da-dum (snap, snap), Ba-da-da-dum, Ba-da-da-dum, Ba-da-da-dum (snap, snap).

It’s the intro to arguably the most famous theme song in entertainment history.

People from Toronto to Tokyo to Tahiti can name that tune in just four triplet eighth notes and two finger snaps.  Don’t let it fool you – it’s not the “Prologue / Jets Song” from “West Side Story.”
